It runs in the family

A few days ago, two of my nephews -- one 11 and the other 8 -- showed me the projects they had been working on. The 11-year-old had made three dream catchers, which would rival anything I've ever seen at an arts and crafts show, and his brother made an earring, which also looked pretty good. He hadn't put the hook on it yet, but I liked what I saw.

My mom apparently had showed them how, and I was very happy to see that they had spent part of their summer doing something constructive rather than just goofing off, which is how I always spent my summers. 

Side note:
I suck at photography. I've tried to take photos of my projects, but I just can't get the bracelets to look sharp like a lot of the jewelry I've seen on Etsy. I know I need to use the macro setting on my camera, but I honestly can't tell the difference between when I use it and when I don't. Maybe I just need to keep trying playing with it. Or maybe I just need a better camera. (Or maybe a better camera operator.)
